^ You're right i ain't a basshead cuz i is a TOTALphile. : P
Cuz being a basshead is too simp for even this cardboard simp.
Nah the QB2s has softer more balanced bass, not sloppier while these Pistons has big old mellow warm ROUND arse BASS, esp. in their mid bass hump which ruins it for me. Those NuFroce NE-700Xs has the same quantity but is sub bass focused hence they sound more clean with less congestion. These Pistons has better micro detailing i'll give them that but not much more. The NuForces is a much truer/ better audiophile worthy basshead iem, while these Pistons sounds like little league stuff.
You also sold me those KZ mirco ring ATH CKN70s lookalikes that you stated blows the QB2s away meng. Nuff said. G.G
..and they were good deals too
What is the source you use? It must be taming the 100-200hz region or so, because the QB2 has a big boost there. It needed over a -5db EQ dip to be balanced. Goldenears shows it too.
Try the 3.5mm adapter at some point I posted earlier. It's very useful for iems with mics, as you don't have to pop them halfway out the socket, and sometimes gives better sound.
